One of the more obvious perks of operating Noble Savage Vintage out of NYC is the access to shows and events such as Manhattan Vintage clothing Show, which is just wonderful for connecting small business owners, such as myself to a world of clientele within film and television, theater and fashion as well as some pretty fabulous vinties.
I have been very fortunate over the past few years to provide quite a few pieces to the team behind Boardwalk Empire. Mainly tuxedos and waistcoats, which typically are not the easiest pieces to spot on TV. However, while watching the Season 4 Premier, I was extremely excited to spot June Thompson, portrayed by Nisi Sturgis, wearing one of my favorite dresses during the Thompson family dinner scene. This early 1920′s dress was sold last winter in near mint condition and is fabricated in an incredible forest green crinkled silk. It’s bodice features a lovely hand done embroidery and there is the cutest little padded heart shaped pocket on the hip. How thrilling it is to see one of my all time favorite dresses on one of my all time favorite shows! Hopefully we will spot a few more pieces during Season 4.

To my mind there is nothing quite like Harris Tweed. I’ve had the pleasure of finding coats for women but most often I have found sports coats and overcoats for men ranging from the 1920s to the 1980s.
Amazingly the coat from the 1920s was in such great condition that I doubted my dating of the coat. An email sent to the Harris Tweed Authority along with the registration number on the Harris Tweed label in the coat quickly informed me that my dating was correct!
So for your pleasure I’ve selected several of my favorite Harris Tweed items available at Born Too Late Vintage.
Vintage 1970s Black Gray Brown White Harris Tweed Jacket Size 50R C52
Vintage 1960s Harris Tweed Mens Overcoat Size L Chest 42
Vintage 1960s Mens Harris Tweed Rock Knit Overcoat Chest 42 W46 H50
Vintage 1970s Brown Gray Rust Blue Harris Tweed Jacket C42 W40 H44

The 60′s was a wild time, with diverse fashion trends. It was a decade that broke many fashion traditions, mirroring social movements during the period. The focus was on Colors & Tones, with accessories taking a back seat. People were dressing in psychedelic prints, highlighter colors, and mismatched patterns was all the rage.
Many iconic designers & celebrities are associated with the 60′s such as Jackie Kennedy who gave us the “pillbox” hat, and Mary Quant who invented the “mini” skirt, and let’s not forget the “Stiletto” heel.
Scorpio Vintage is proud to be able to offer you a fine selection of 60′s fashions….that never go out of style. Be the best dressed, from head to toe!
First up is the Iconic designer Malcolm Starr. This brightly colored floral silk print is perfect for your summer affair.
Next we have a pair of Silk sling back stiletto pumps that show the true meaning of “neon” colors.
This next dress expresses the “Jackie Kennedy” style that was so popular. Understated elegance in a slubbed silk.
This next dress epitomizes the 60′s love of bright colors. I call this print “lightning Bolts”, and is the perfect office attire as so often seen on the TV show “Mad Men”
Stop by and see all the lovely items from this & other decade

Summer has officially begun and ahead lies long, sultry, steamy, hot n’ lazy summer days.
With the long dog days of summer now upon us, breaking out in cool summer whites can help to bring the temps down just a bit. What better way to stand out, look and feel cool, calm and delightful than when decked out in summer whites? From bright brilliant white to antique white, ivory, pearl, cream, tan and everything in between, cool shades of white run the gamut. All the subtle shades of white come to life in the summer sun.
Whether paired with a vintage faux pearl hand bag, to a pair of simply retro bright white resin earrings or even a white raffia handbag with deep chocolate lucite handles for striking contrast, white always draws attention! So for your next Wedding, Garden Party, Afternoon Tea, or Barbeque, stand head and shoulders above all the rest in the fabulous shades of white!
